    So I figured I should introduce myself. Would have done it sooner but every time I log in something comes up. Anywho, I'm just an average twenty something white guy. 26 to be exact. I'm not new to the use of firearms but I am new to owning a gun. c9 is my first purchase, and even though I've not fired it yet I like it. I like what I've seen here and look forward reading the threads, as well as posting my own. That's it for now. peace.

    PS: on the "laid magazines" note, I loaded up my new HP22 mags, how long should I let them sit? Isn't it a week for the Hi Point Mags?

    What the fusk is a HP22?

    Had a 9mm 10 rounder that took months to come around.

    Never heard you had to do that with a HP22, but it would not hurt anything.

    Well, rounds 9 & 10 were very difficult to insert. I worked the springs with a rod several times, and pushed in on the rounds that were in there already with said rod, to make it easier. Without rounds in the mag, it looks as though it could hold 11 or 12 rounds easily, but 10 is a bear. I'm sure it will loosen up. :cool:
     
  17. It actually used to hold 11. Until the Clinton ban I beleive. You can still find them on ebay. Notice the eleventh hole in the back.

    Me thinks they just put a spacer on the floor plate the size of a 22lr. ;-)

    I had plans of dremeling the floor plate to see if it would work. But you know how it goes.

    Yes, it has a tall spacer on the base plate for the spring, I believe cutting that down would help, but it looked like it could/should take another round just by pressing harder. I will investigate further, I already have 5 mags for it :cool:
